Have you ever woken up one day to find that home no longer felt like home? Like a part of you that used to be there now beckoned to you from some far off place?
Amidst the Dark tells the story of a young wanderer who feels that his home calls to him from the stars. He leaves everything he knows behind in pursuit of his real home. A cosmic storm interrupts his journey and sets him adrift on the far side of the galaxy. Floating among the stars, he finds peace and solace in the fact that he's not alone on his journey to discover the place he truly belongs.

The focus of this project is on the emotions that occur in the months following a break-up as told through an allegory about traveling through space and into the unknown. In true programmatic fashion, each track tells a different part of the story. The combination of synthesizers and organic orchestral elements helps to develop a variety of styles that will give the project a complete and intricate feel
